KMG Chemicals (KMG) Worth a Look: Stock Moves 14% Higher

KMG Chemicals, Inc.KMG was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise over 14% on the day. The move came after the company reported better-than-expected second-quarter fiscal 2017 results. This also led to far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $36.65 to $38.84 in the past one-month time frame.

None of the estimates for this stock were revised in the last 30 days and the Zacks Consensus Estimate also remained unchanged. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

KMG Chemicals currently sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).

With battery prices plummeting and charging stations set to multiply, one company stands out as the #1 stock to buy according to Zacks research. It's not the one you think. See This Ticker Free >>
